Caring for the Homeless Collaborative Planning Warming Shelter
Last night, Plans for The Caring for the Homeless Collaborative met to discuss a proposed warming station in Otsego County. According to AllOTSEGO, a decision on a location has not been made yet. Two locations considered but rejected due to being too small or unfit as a warming shelter were the Salvation Army on River St. and the River St. Baptist Church. Once a location is decided upon, it has to be determined which organization will oversee the operation of the warming shelter.
Members of the Collaborative will also define homelessness as a means of addressing the needs of the community. Part of that task comes in the form of not only recognizing homeless individuals, but families as well.
The collaborative is hoping that they can help make a difference, one initiative at a time.
